IEEE Brain was formed in 2015 to create a technical community to facilitate cross-disciplinary collaboration and coordination to advance research, standardization, and development of engineering and technology to improve our understanding of the brain to treat diseases and to improve human condition. As an IEEE-wide effort, IEEE Brain unites engineering and computing expertise across IEEE Societies and Councils relevant to neuroscience, and provides an avenue for IEEE to work with multiple constituencies in academia, industry and government to incubate and sponsor new activities, projects, and standards that facilitate bringing neurotechnology to market in an ethical and responsible manner.

Our society along with eight (8) other societies are financial sponsors to IEEE Brain. We work collaboratively to help advance areas such as brain machine interfaces (BMIs), bioelectronics, computational neuroscience and signal/image processing, neuromorphic computing, and neuroethics.

  • IEEE Circuits and Systems Society
  • IEEE Computational Intelligence Society
  • IEEE Computer Society
  • IEEE Electron Devices Society
  • IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society
  • IEEE Magnetics Society
  • IEEE Signal Processing Society
  • IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society
  • IEEE Systems, Man, and Cybernetics Society

IEEE Brain sponsors several events and provides a host of resources to the community. Check out the following events and resources.

As a financial sponsor to IEEE Brain, our society members can join the IEEE Brain Community at no additional cost.  Simply add the IEEE Brain Community membership to the cart and proceed to checkout.  You will enjoy benefits such as free and discount to IEEE Brain content and event registrations.  For example, IEEE Brain Community members has free access to any one of the 12+ recorded webinars from the IEEE Brain Webinar Series.
